Join us to explore memoir-style personal essay or start the first chapter of your book. Whether you are just jumping into writing or you've been at it for a while, this class has something for everyone. We will begin with a discussion using a random selection of memoirs as examples, then move on to a writing exercise to kick-off your story. During lunch, there will be an informal discussion about how authors or other artists express vulnerability. In the second half of class, we will write journal-style with the intention of exploring our narrative voice. We will then turn these snippets into eloquent scenes that are infused with the quirks and idiosyncrasies of our narrator (ourselves.) My hope is that each participant leaves this class with a better sense of their story and especially the strength of their voice. 

I will reference - Your Life is a Book: How to Craft & Publish Your Memoir by Brenda Peterson and Sarah Jane Freymann

Bring a memoir, pen and paper as well as a packed lunch.
